Lucas Lambertsz van Beveren (Bestevaer) was an Anabaptist martyr, beheaded at Amsterdam on 19 January 1544, with Jan Claesz. Lucas Lambertsz is the oldest of all the martyrs, being 87 years of age. No particulars are known about him except that he had been baptized by Menno Simons. The statement in the Mennonitisches Lexicon that he was a preacher, is not correct. Jan Claesz and Lucas Lambertsz are celebrated in a hymn found in Offer des Heeren, beginning "Het waren twee gebroeders goet" (There were two good brethren).
